Another Koolaid dyeing session with sock wool produced these yummies back in the summer.
Grape, Black Cherry and Pink Lemonade.
I use a large enamel bath on the stove top so I can drag the wool through the dye. As the grape colour splits, the red dyes the cream wool and leaves the blue behind in the bath. When I drag some of the undyed cream wool through the left over colour, the lavender happens.
Knitting two strands together thickens it up and I love it when the soft pink lemonade and the lavender knit together .
The pattern is a mug cosy from an old Mollie Makes, a great combination of knit and pearl to create texture. I think I’ll get a few out of this and I’m enjoying the break from quilting.
